CCAS Summer Scholarship

 

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must:

  • Be a current undergraduate CCAS student in good standing (CCAS must be the applicant’s primary school).
  • Receive need-based financial aid (not student loans) during the regular academic year.
  • Be registered for CCAS summer course(s).
  • Have submitted a current FAFSA form for the 2020 - 2021 academic year.

Please note: Students may apply for multiple sources of financial aid; however, students who receive summer financial aid from other GW sources cannot also receive the CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship.

How to Apply

  1. Register for CCAS summer course(s).
    This is mandatory as one of the factors considered is the coursework the student intends to take and why. Payment is not required at the time of course registration. Decisions will be sent in time for students to drop the courses with no financial or academic penalty if they do not receive a scholarship or if they turn it down. Applications by students who are not registered for CCAS summer classes will be denied.
  2. Submit a CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship application form for each CCAS course for which you register.

Important Dates

  • The application for the CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship opens March 15, 2021.
  • The application closes at midnight April 12, 2021.

About the Award

The CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship can be used for all CCAS summer courses. Funding is limited however and priority will be given to students who are taking courses for G-PAC or major requirements.

Students who receive summer financial aid from other GW sources (e.g., Summer Academy) cannot also receive the CCAS Dean's Summer Scholarship.

Summer Scholarship FAQs

Yes, applying for other scholarships or aid will not impact the decision to award the scholarships. If you are fortunate enough to get more than one offer, you should accept whichever offer is best for you.

You may register and apply for the Summer Scholarship for as many courses as you wish. However, funds are limited. It is unlikely that anyone will get enough money to pay for multiple courses.

It is hard to say at this point, and each case is different. The purpose of the scholarship is to help the greatest number of students possible; however, funds are limited. Last year, all students who received the Summer Scholarship got enough aid to pay for one credit. That being said, if you qualify, apply. It costs nothing and you are under no obligation.

Yes, each year is different. There is no reason someone couldn’t receive a scholarship more than once. Even if you did not receive a scholarship last year, or were offered one and turned it down, feel free to apply.

No. No tuition is due until the first day of the summer session in which the class is being taught. Students who register for a CCAS summer class in order to apply for the scholarship and later decide to drop the class will owe nothing, as long as the course is dropped prior to the first day of the session.
